The Phasael Tower is the last extant tower built by Herod during his rule from 37 to 4 B.C.E.. Originally three towers were built on the north-west angle of the First Wall, each equipped with battlements and turrets. The surving section of the Phasael tower is only the base. archaeological excavations have show that the tower was integrated into an earlier city wall, the First Wall.
